      Film Screening: Heart of the Fraser

      Join us on World River's Day for a special screening of The Heart of the Fraser documentary, in the Heart of the Fraser itself! The film calls attention to the continuing destruction of a culturally-rich ecosystem in the lower Fraser River; namely the gravel reach from Hope to Mission, British Columbia. It showcases the extraordinary environmental of this unique ecosystem, the profound changes development has had on the landscape, and the efforts to protect and restore the gravel reach from further degradation. After the screening, we will be joined by a panel of experts for an interactive Q&A session. LOCATION - GW Graham Theatre, Chilliwack TIME - Saturday Sept 21st, doors open 7pm and film starts 7:30pm WHAT IS WORLD RIVERS DAY? World Rivers Day is a celebration of the world's waterways.
